Overview

The irony of Sarah’s life was watching this remarkable child battle for survival while teaching us how to fully live. Hope Is Everything: Sarah’s Story is more than a narrative of one child’s courageous fight against the terminal disease of cystic fibrosis. It is a study into how a child approached life with fulness and joy despite her tremendous obstacles. The best-seller and successful television movie, Alex: the Life of a Child, stirred an interest in CF twenty years ago. Since then this interest has dramatically increased. CF is on the cutting edge of gene therapy and promises for a cure. It is heralded as a forerunner for what may follow for many other diseases as well. Newspapers are continually flooded with announcements on CF’s progress. It has generated much public notice. Though Alex is still in print, a tribute to its lasting quality, it is now outdated. Medical information has drastically expanded, and Sarah’s Story reflects all this. A must-read.

This is a tremendous story of finding joy and up lift in a time of adversity. I think those who have dealt with terminal family members (as I have) will find solace, comfort, and new insights. The author helps us see how to deal with these situations and actually find joy in the time we have with our family members. I think this is a wonderful book, and a loving story. I have met Sarah, and she truly was an angel.
